Azure Blob Storage

For cold backups, archive data, and if you need cheap online storage that will not be regularly accessed. Also very good for streaming videos or audio files, for example, if you have an online education portal, you can store all the video files in Blob storage and then just load them on your website. The same applies for storing website content, pdfs, etc.

OVHcloud Public Cloud

The VPS/Cloud/Dedicated server offerings are performant and cost effective for any application - you can really host and build anything on their network and server solutions. It is highly recommended that any user of OVHcloud [Public Cloud] be well-experienced in technical/server-admin, as the support from OVH is limited. Companies that don't have very experienced systems administrators or hobbyists or individual hosting clients that aren't familiar with linux/command line/sysadmin, should be wary of using OVH products as there is very limited support from OVH available.

Pros

Azure Blob Storage

  • Reduced cost. We were able to reduce our storage infrastructure by several hundred terabytes by consolidating redundant copies and dedupe/compression on files.
  • Extremely high level of redundancy. We can replicate data in a variety of ways that we would never have been capable of on our own hardware.

Cons

Azure Blob Storage

  • One thing we wish was done better is more guidance for building it out from day one. We did not know what we were doing and until we hired an implementation person that understood what we wanted to do. We spent a lot of time and money doing things over several times.
  • Help customers hook up with talented (local) implementation specialists would be great.

Documentation sometimes appears to be out of date or not fully documented properly with new releases. It is like documentation comes out for a specific version and is quickly out of date. Another issue is documentation is scarce on new releases and only seems to get properly updated (and sometimes is still wrong) once enough people hit the forums to complain.

Azure Blob is the only major cloud object storage platform that we use today.

OVHcloud Public Cloud

Most notably OVHcloud [Public Cloud] has dedicated servers which are a different breed of product than Linode's flagship VPS servers, the unfortunate fact of the matter is that OVHcloud [Public Cloud] can provide a fully-dedicated server at a lower price point than Linode's virtual server. Even worse than that is that with a dedicated server from [OVHcloud Public Cloud] there is zero chance of "cpu theft" (aka, noisy neighbor) which is a very real problem at Linode (we would require multiple migrations every year for servers hosted at Linode that were experiencing cpu theft). In addition to the improvement in quality for network/hardware at OVHcloud [Public Cloud] with their dedicated server offering, their VPS servers are also highly competitive against Linode's VPS servers - in the 2 years we've used OVHcloud [Public Cloud] VPS's we've had zero downtime associated with OVH actions such as host-node reboots or cpu theft or host node upgrades, a stark difference compared to Linode which regularly experiences those types of downtimes and many more on a very regular basis.

Return on Investment

Azure Blob Storage

  • Azure Blob Storage is just way cheaper than anything we could afford to do on-prem. Forecasting spend is way easier with predictable growth than it is with large capital expenditures every few years, and that ability to grow or shrink dynamically is simplifies things.

OVHcloud Public Cloud

  • Cost of virtual servers was reduced by 20% versus other VPS/Cloud providers.
  • Cost of dedicated servers was reduced by 50% versus other dedicated server providers.
  • Network speeds decreased considerably versus other providers.
  • Network quotas improved considerably versus other providers (unlimited at OVH).
  • Uptime has improved considerably which has improved client reputation.
